Philosophy and Social Criticism 33 (1):35-53 (2007)
This article discusses the role that history and historiography play in Brandoms Tales of the Mighty Dead . I claim that Brandoms attempt to integrate a historical dimension in his inferentialist project fails, and argue that the reason for that failure lies in the misconstruction and misreading of Hegels idea of rationality with regard, at least, to two fundamental points: to the Hegelian concept of history and to his notion of the social. The further point that I make remains an open question and regards the ideological motives that lead American analytic pragmatists to repeatedly try to institute such a misconstrued contact with Hegel - a contact that is necessarily bound to fail unless the historical dimension of Hegels philosophy is not only recognized but somehow integrated into the very idea of philosophy that one systematically practises. Key Words: Robert Brandom G.W.F.Hegel history history of philosophy historiography.
